In the bustling streets of Jerusalem, amidst the fervent cries of "Hosanna," Bishop Gregory Newman delivered a powerful message on the significance of this ancient declaration. "Hosanna," a word that echoes through the ages, holds profound meaning in the hearts of believers.

In his sermon, delivered on Palm Sunday, Bishop illuminated the essence of "Hosanna" as he unfolded its layers of significance, revealing Jesus as the sole King worthy of such adoration.

Bishop emphasized that "Hosanna" transcends mere recognition of royalty; it embodies a profound acknowledgment of Jesus as the sovereign ruler. He underscored the pivotal role of "Hosanna" in the narrative of faith, asserting that one cannot truly grasp the significance of the resurrection without first experiencing a Hosanna moment.

  • Mary: Experienced her Hosanna moment when she gave birth to Christ, recognizing the divine significance of her son's birth.

  • The Angels: Declared their Hosanna when they proclaimed peace and goodwill to humanity upon Christ's birth, understanding the transformative impact of his arrival.

  • The Shepherds: Encountered their Hosanna moment when they found Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes, realizing the fulfillment of the long-awaited prophecy.

  • Anna: Had her Hosanna moment when she beheld Jesus in the temple, recognizing him as the fulfillment of God's promises.

  • Simeon: Experienced his Hosanna moment when he proclaimed that he could depart in peace after seeing the Lord's Christ, acknowledging Jesus as the awaited Messiah.

  • Peter: Declared his Hosanna when he confessed Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the Living God, acknowledging Jesus' divine identity and authority.

  • Thomas: Had his Hosanna moment when he declared, "My Lord and my God," upon seeing the resurrected Jesus, acknowledging Jesus' lordship and divinity.

  • Satan: Even Satan had his Hosanna moment when he acknowledged Jesus as the Son of God, realizing Jesus' authority and power.

  • Pilate: Experienced his Hosanna moment when he wrote "King of the Jews" on the inscription above Jesus' cross, acknowledging Jesus' kingship, albeit unknowingly.

"Hosanna," as Bishop Newman articulated, is not merely a word; it is an event—a transformative encounter with the King of kings. It serves as a call to all believers to not only acknowledge Jesus as King but to exalt Him as "My King" in every aspect of our lives.

As we carry the torch of faith, may we illuminate the world with the light of Christ, echoing the eternal cry of "Hosanna" in our hearts and actions.
